Stone Harbour "Meadow Mouse"

Post by JimBoylan » Mon Oct 31, 2005 12:19 pm

The West Jersey NRHS history of the branch from Haddonfield to Medford mentions that the last passenger service in the late 1920s used a railcar called the "Meadow Mouse" because it came from Stone Harbor service. Did it get its name from the PRR's island hopping Sea Isle City to Stone Harbour run, or the Stone Harbor RR's Cape May Court House to Stone Harbor line, which may have had more salt marsh meadows? (The SHRR connected with the Rdg. at Cape May Court House.)

I think it was the PRR one. I live in Medford and vacation in Stone Harbor, so i find it kinda funny that a train served both cities.
